General Motors Co on Tuesday presented a futuristic Flying Cadillac – an autonomous vehicle that takes off and lands vertically and carries the passenger over the streets and through the air. A senior GM executive described the concept as “reinventing the future of personal transportation.” The single-seater Cadillac – technically a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drone – will be able to travel from an urban rooftop to an urban rooftop at speeds of up to 55 miles per hour.

The Flying Cadillac was featured in a video as part of a virtual presentation by General Manager Mary Barra, along with a family-friendly Cadillac electric shuttle.

Barra revealed last year that the automaker is exploring alternative modes of transportation such as air taxis.
